Nutella Coconut Scones, a delicious traditional scone with just the right amount of Nutella and Coconut to take it to the next level! The perfect breakfast or snack recipe idea.
Easy Scone Recipe
If somebody asked me what I wanted for breakfast I would definitely say a good old scone! One of my favourite breakfast includes a delicious, warm scone.
I like a plain scone a lot, but there’s something much, much better that I came up with the other day that just takes this recipe to a whole new level. what if I said coconut? and then Nutella?
Yes, you got it! I made Nutella coconut scones!
I wasn’t sure what taste they would have once baked, but they turned out to be very light and delicate. You can taste the Nutella and the coconut but neither taste overpowers the other.
If I could I would add coconut to everything so it just made sense to me to mix it in the scone dough, but why Nutella?
How to make Easy Scones
- Pre – heat oven to 400°F.
- In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients.
- Then add the butter and the Nutella and mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add the sugar and combine.
- Heat the milk and add the lemon juice and vanilla, set aside and let cool.
Then add coconut flakes to the mixture in the big bowl,
Add the cooled liquid and combine it quickly.
Work the mixture gently with your hands until it forms a soft dough, pat it into a circle about 1 inch thick.
Cut the dough into slices, brush the tops with a little milk and place the scones on the hot baking sheet you previously put in the oven.
- Bake for about 10 minutes until risen and golden on the top.
I have to admit I’m not a big fan of the chocolate hazelnut cream, but since I’m leaving Italy in just a week, I wanted to give my Italian roots some recognition.
If you are big Nutella lovers like my sister, then I do suggest you add more Nutella to the mixture, mine had just a slight taste of chocolate and that’s why even the colour of the scones is pale brown.
So whether you make these for Breakfast or a snack I hope you enjoy them. Have a wonderful week.
